As gamers, it can feel like we spend most of our time counting down the days until that next big game releases. Until your pre-order is delivered through your door or you can finally access that digital download you purchased. You boot the game up for the first time, palms sweaty (knees weak, arms possibly heavy, too), as you press ‘New Game’ and embark on another epic adventure. But just how well do you remember those iconic game’s release dates, or even release years once you’ve finished playing them?
Well, we thought we’d put your knowledge of release years to the test, by giving you 25 of the most iconic games of all-time and seeing if you can correctly guess their release years in North America.
Don’t expect this to be some easy walk in the park, either. We’re going to be testing your knowledge on everything from the PlayStation 1 and N64 eras, right through to more modern games that have been released on the last (and current generation of consoles). It may sound easy enough, but just wait until your mind goes blank when you start the quiz. Have fun with that!
This should be the game’s initial release year in the territory, too, and not one for a remaster or remake that came at a later date. Similarly, we’re looking for the full release of the game, no betas or anything like that… not that that’s a clue for any of the games… Oh, and of course, no cheating!
If you’re looking to continue testing your release date knowledge, then we’ve got some good news for you. We’ve got quizzes on PS4 game release dates, console release dates, and Nintendo Switch game release dates, too!
Let us know how you get on in the comments below. We promise not to judge!
